They tagged the first Great White last night.
I met Chris Fisher this morning at the Chatham Fish pier. Very cool guy.
As bummed as I am to have Great Whites invade my home break I find it fascinating as well.
Picture of the first GW to be lifted and tagged in the Atlantic.

Check it out at ..... http://ocearch.org/

Enough of those guys swimming around, and windsurfing really will be canceled.
I wonder if they could be fitted with chips implanted in their cheerio-sized brains that commands them to chase (but not eat) kiters? I pay to watch that……

Why wouldn't windsurfers just use their eyes? You can see a kiter, just go chase him........ Oh you mean Implanted in the sharks cheerio size brain!

Here's a posted notice on the Orleans Town Website

"Nauset Beach will remain closed to swimming for the remainder of the season due to the recent shark sightings in the area."

My question is what does the end of the season mean?????????????
